Contact me at Yoshima Books for review requests. I prefer print version but in rare cases review mobi files. Paperback or hardcover get priority always!
I like to read, review and talk about almost all genres! I don’t fancy historical or biographies but I’m willing to the review them if they are creative! I’m a bit tougher on fantasy novels because I fully commit, so the world needs to be well developed. I rate using stars similar to Goodreads. Here’s my rating scale info:
5 stars – One of my favorite books I’ve read in a long time. I will likely re-read this at some point and recommend to other reader friends. Buy it and keep it!
4 stars – Good story but there was something lacking. Nothing too big to take away from the story but I still enjoyed the read and would recommend. Buy it then loan it!
3 stars – Book was okay. I probably found some character development issues, cliche points or overly dramatic scenes. Or nothing was wrong and it was just simply not very memorable. Borrow it.
2 stars – This book drained me. It had either editing issues or serious development issues. Get it free but don’t waste your money.
1 star – I probably could not finish this book and it needs to be totally re-worked. Not recommended. Turn and run…
You can find me on Goodreads under AuthorTRHorne which is where most of my reviews come from and are posted but I link to all my social media accounts under @authortrhorne and normally take photos of all hard copies and share them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (about 10,000 reached and growing). I also post to Amazon and any other site you wish, just let me know. All opinions are mine and not coerced or influenced, so you will only receive an honest review. I publish ALL my reviews so have faith in your work or choose not to send it but if I accept it…it will be reviewed. So don’t delay, send over your advanced reader copies, new releases and books in need of review. I usually plan month-by-month but I can squeeze in advanced readers sooner.
Note to authors: Feel free to use snippets from the reviews on your books or advertising (as long as it keeps within the same vein of the review, please).
